Identity and Access Management for B2C

B2C-level IAM includes customers, clients, patients and other individuals receiving services from the business. Consumers who access an organization’s data should be part of the organization’s IAM system to provide them access to the data they need and restrict access to confidential data.

Access Management

Access management is the automation of consumer authentication to appropriated access based on their role within an organization. It provides comprehensive security measures to limit user access to the information within their defined role and ease access to appropriate applications and systems.

Single Sign-On (SSO)

Single sign-on (SSO) is a fundamental component of access management that enables consumers to log in to an application with a single set of credentials and automatically gain access to various associated applications.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Multi-factor authentication is a security enhancement that requires consumers to provide more than one authentication method while logging in to an account. It comprises two of the following: a security question, a code from a separate device, or a fingerprint/facial recognition. MFA adds layers to your consumers’ defense system, making it far more difficult for hackers to access their credentials.

Web Access Management (WAM)

A WAM product allows an organization to extend its IAM program to web-based resources for consumers. It offers enhanced security measures by focusing on authenticating consumers and ensuring proper authorization, allowing users secure access to accounts for external web applications.

Most WAM solutions offer additional capabilities that benefit consumers, such as self-service password reset, delegation of control, role-based access control and automated provisioning.

Identity Management

Any company must maintain unique identities for all their users and service accounts to ensure that the correct people are getting access to the right systems. While Access Management is about authorizing an account’s access to a system or process, Identity Management is about authenticating an account’s identity before determining its associated access.

Identity management takes out the guesswork of managing identities by automating tasks such as verification of identity attributes and assigning them their designated roles within each of your core systems.
